Description A Basket of Chips Paris. I am also exhibiting an etching and an oil in New York City at the National Arts Club, 15 Gramarcy Park, where I am a member. About three years ago I was appointed Head of the Art Department at the University of Utah." I installed an etching press, and established a class in color etching, the only instruc- tion of its kind in the United States.'

It means LAE "To Laugh- ing or Loving Eyes" (the A is the French "to") my wife-to-be. Her name is Ione Godwin, a student, majoring in Literature at the University of Utah.' Ione shares my major interests and looks at life with the same philosophy and delight. In a letter to Ione last summer, I wrote: How wonderful and strange it is.

Harwood gave this small press to another of his students, Raymond E. Chugg . . . . Mr. Chugg's recent gift of this Harwood press to the Department is therefore much appreciated, and it will remain on view . . . as an interesting object related to our program's past." The press has been on display in the Alvin Gittins Gallery, Department of Art, University of Utah since 1.981. Robert S. Olpin, Exhibit label for etching press, 1981. 7 Ione, who became Harwood's wife the following year, resides in Honolulu, Hawaii. She was Harwood's collaborator/editor/typist in the preparation of the C&r typescript and has been very helpful in the preparation of this book. 150
